Debbie C. asked:
I love crazy quilts and crazy quilting! Yours is gorgeous. I'm still embellishing my blocks, seems like you can just keep on embellishing forever....one of these days I'll say "done". What fabric did you use for the sashing and borders? I'm trying to decide whether to use cotton or go with velvet or some other fancy fabric.
djevans376@yahoo.com answered:
It is velvet but then that causes laundry problems. Depends on how much you plan to use it I guess. I have my displayed on a bed in a guest room and when someone comes I put it away.
